Drone pPulls Back / Right

I'm at a loss. I've swapped out the back right motor, thinking it was weak, and causing the drone to drift back/right. I swapped it out with a back/right motor from my other drone that drifts forward/left. Same behavior. So I opened up a new motor and popped it in - same result. Shafts are straight,...

Big AR DroneMod Video! GoPro Mount & MacGyver RC Mod How to.

Hey Guys! So I spent the last couple of months making a sort of "how to" video showing ways to mod your Drone for great video that does not get the drone in the shot. The mount is from Etfett.net and the MacGyver RC mod is from MacDrones.com. I also suggest MaxAmps batteries for their awesome weight...

Re: Best AR Drone Aerial Footage EVER

Yes, the Q-Bond worked nicely, and the Drone flies perfectly again. I was joking about the gun powder... Oddly, the Drone being filmed won't hover any more. It took one small fall from 5', and I had to change 3 shafts and 2 gears, and for some reason it wants to fly backwards now. The central cross ...

Best AR Drone Aerial Footage EVER

I have an EPIC AR Drone video here. Air-to-Air footage, drone-to-drone, using a GoPro at Sequoia Park in Eureka, Ca. There is a crash from 250 feet, above the redwood trees. All the conditions seemed to be right to get some nice footage with minimum jello-cam caused by the vibrations of the props/mo...

Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

Hey I shot another video with the old GoPro mounted to the Drone - controlled by the MacGyver RC mod of course. This was a test to see if I could lose some of the vibration causing jello in my image. I'll get the Youtube version uploaded asap: http://vimeo.com/chadfish" onclick="window.open(this.hre...

Here is some more footage taken from Drones in the air, while being flown with the MacGyver mod. Man the MacGyver really makes the AR Drone awesome!

Re: Stock Battery vs Cheap Aftermarket Batteries in Various

I have a couple of MaxAmps, and I love them. But I just expanded to 2 drones, so I am trying the Turnigy Nano Tech 1300mAh. I just ordered 2 as well as these connectors: Mini Tamiya Female Connector (10pcs/set) http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__9637__Mini_Tamiya_Female_Connector_10pcs_set_....

Re: Undermounted Go Pro HD on a AR.Drone (1080p)

Nice flight Bart! I saw a few really smooth looking sections.You should string all those together, turn off the engine sound, and add some music to make it interesting. It looked like the Drone was flying pretty well. Was there any wind?

Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

It's in the info of the youtube video if you go to the video on youtube itself. I also just put it on the first post of the thread. I must have forgot.

I've just posted another video showing how the drone flys with the RC mod. No instructional stuff - just pure flying, and a little crashing at the end...
